We remain committed to our community charities for 2018, as follows: Brain Aneurysm Foundation, Holiday Gifts for under-privileged children in Chester (P.Ofc. Jon Ross) and Healthy After School Nutrition for the William Dicks School in North Philadelphia. We are thrilled to report that we made over $35,000 in 2017 for our charities.
Thank you for all who attended the 6th Annual The Reel Deal: Frank Goes to the Grand Prix! The Simeone Automotive Museum was the perfect new venue. Sydney did an amazing job getting us on the dance floor and letting us all have fun. Of course, our guests, sponsors and all those who helped in so many ways made it a memorable night. On behalf of Fight Like Frank, we thank each and every one of you for helping us raise money for our charities and help us remember Frank Gessler.
FLF board members personally donate items totaling close to $3,000.00 for Hurricane Harvey victims. Dog food and toys, cat food, and various toiletries were donated and moved through Firpo Moving Company (Aston, PA) to Texas. Way to go FLF!

September is Brain Aneurysm Awareness month. Six years ago, Frank Gessler lost his life to a Brain Aneurysm. He was just 30 years old. Five years ago, we created a non-profit foundation to remember his legacy & educate others about the disease, @fightlikefrank. Five years ago, I was introduced to the @bafound. Over those five years, I have met some of the most incredible people. One year ago, they asked me to sit on the Board of Directors for the foundation. This week, I’ve had the honor of attending the annual research symposium. It was incredible to see how much research is going into brain aneurysms. Tonight, we presented $485,000 in research grants to those doing the research. The most BAF has ever given. Fight Like Frank has a chair of research with the BAF and this year, I was able to present that award to Dr. Rutledge from California. This was truly an amazing opportunity. I’m extremely humbled to be apart of this organization & I absolutely love being a voice for the disease. There is absolutely no other way I’d rather spend my time than giving back. #1in50 #brainaneurysm #fightlikefrankfoundation @ Duke University
